From Turban to Toe Ring is a guide for designing and making tribal belly dancewear. This style, which orginated in the San Francisco dance community and has spread world-wide, is fast becoming one of the most popular costuming options. Tribal costuming is an assemblage of design elements pulled from many different tribal, rural, and nomadic peoples from North Africa, across the Near and Middle East, and as far away as India. Surface design techniques, articles of clothing, and jewelry components are fused together to create a look that blends all of these items together into an exciting and uniquely individual image for each dancer.
This book will be an excellent source for the libraries of belly dance teachers, costume designers, historical re-enactors, and dancers who want a break from the high glitz and glamour of cabaret-style costuming.
Accompanied by over three hundred original illustrations, this 102-page book contains numerous hints, tips, and directions for making, designing, and assembling a tribal costume.
